Since its first publication in 1991, New Flora of the British Isles has become established as the standard work on the identification of the wild vascular plants of the British Isles. The Flora remains unique in many features, including its full coverage of all British wild plants, its user-friendly organisation, and its specially compiled keys and descriptions. This new edition includes the addition of more than 160 species, so that 4,800 taxa are now covered in varying degrees of detail. It also incorporates the new molecular system of classification based on DNA sequences. Furthermore, it includes 1600 species illustrations, rewritten distributions and an overhaul of the designation of degrees of rarity, with the introduction of a third, less rare, category. These revisions should ensure that this third edition remains the essential reference source for all taxonomists, ecologists, conservationists, plant hunters and biogeographers, whether they be researchers, teachers, students or amateurs.

The varied and often beautiful forms of freshwater algae have long held a fascination for naturalists and professional scientists alike, particularly those involved in monitoring and managing the freshwater environment. This Flora provides the first modern account and identification guide to more than 2200 species of freshwater algae found in the British Isles (excluding diatoms), the majority of which also have a world-wide distribution. Non-technical descriptions are supported by clear line illustrations or photographs that emphasise the features significant for identification, most of which can be seen with a simple light microscope. In addition, user-friendly keys enable the accurate identification of specimens to the level of genus or species. Notes are included on ecology, world distribution and any taxonomic problems or identification difficulties. The accompanying CD-ROM photo catalogue of more than 900 spectacular colour images of freshwater algae and their habitats provides a valuable additional reference source and identification tool.

This book describes and illustrates in detail the 760 species of mosses currently known to occur in the British Isles and incorporates the most up-to-date information available on classification and nomenclature, together with recent synonyms. The species descriptions provide information on frequency, ecology, geographical relationships and distribution, including information on protected species and those species at risk. For many species there are footnotes to aid identification. In addition to the species descriptions there are descriptions of families and genera and also introductory information on conservation, collection, preservation and examination of material, together with advice on using the keys. An artificial key to genera provides the only workable comprehensive key published in the English language. This second edition incorporates the very considerable advances in our knowledge of mosses made in the last quarter of the twentieth century and will provide a unique resource for all concerned with these fascinating organisms.

Planned in five volumes, this critical Flora provides a definitive account of the native species, naturalised species, frequent garden escapes and casuals found in the British Isles. Full keys and descriptions will enable the user to name all plants occurring in the wild, plus some ornamental trees and shrubs. For the first time detailed accounts of all the large apomictic genera are given and many infraspecific variants included. Each species entry begins with the accepted Latin name, synonyms and the common English name. A detailed description follows, including information on flowering period, pollination and chromosome number. Separate descriptions are given for infraspecific taxa. Information on the status, ecology and distribution (including worldwide distribution) of the species and infraspecific taxa is also given. Clear black and white line drawings illustrate an extensive glossary and also illuminate the diagnostic features in a number of groups of plants.

The British Isles has one of the best known bryophyte floras in Europe, and the richness of the liverwort flora in western oceanic regions of Britain and Ireland is of worldwide significance. Nevertheless the extreme variability of many of the species has made identification notoriously difficult. This work is intended to enable both the amateur, whether beginner or more experienced, and the professional bryologist to determine the morphologically variable species more readily.

The first ever fully-illustrated, fully-mapped guide to the British and Irish flora. Its restriction to the British Isles alone allows far more detail and more local information, and identification which is made easier with the inclusion of extensive maps. Includes specific details about plants appearing in certain areas and coloured maps designed to make location and identification easy, this book also includes details of local specialities for the Isles of Scilly. Also featured is an illustrated survey of recently disappeared British and Irish plants, some of which may return. With over 2000 detailed colour paintings and more than 800 maps, this is the most extensively illustrated wild flower guide to Britain and Ireland yet. Coloured, boxed keys to plants in complex or difficult groups are provided to assist ID. The Wild Flowers of Britain and Ireland features information about grasses, which are often omitted in other, shorter books, along with sedges, rushes, horsetails and clubmosses. Ferns, though not strictly speaking flowering plants, are also included too.

The word ‘aliens’ can be used in many ways, to invoke fear, dislike and fascination. For biologists it is used to indicate organisms that have been introduced by people to new territories. In the British Isles alien plants are common, conspicuous, pestiferous, beautiful, edible – and can be both useful and harmful.

Hampshire is considered by some to be botanically the richest county in Britain, and is also regarded as an area of great interest in a European context. Providing coverage of the occurrence in Hampshire (not including the Isle of Wight) of all vascular plants, this book also contains full lists of bryophytes and lichens. The coverage includes chapters on some earlier workers on the Hampshire flora (by David E. Allen), the structure and habitats of Hampshire (by Dr Francis Rose), and conservation of the flora in Hampshire (by Dr Peter Brough). The extensive systematic account of the flowering plants is accompanied by dot-distribution maps, based on records compiled over a number of years.
